Beautiful by SUE CREASE

Today I'm sharing a layout I have made for The Mad Scrapper Blog using beautiful papers from Maja Design. A full list can be found at the bottom of this post.
This layout will be a gift to my dearest friend as it shows her daughter's wedding dress before she wore it back in September last year.
When I saw this photograph I knew I wanted to use it but had to wait for it to come on over to me and I knew the paper collection I would use.
I was lucky enough to win the challenge over on the Dusty Attic Blog earlier this year and I chose amongst other things this wonderful 12x12 Hearts chipboard so I cut apart a few sections and gesso'd them up and inked using distress inks.
Here you can see where I have placed them. I took the photo and matted it on to 2 papers and tucked foam under to stabilise it. I also added some vintage lace to the bottom. The paper has a faded out tapestry so I added some using Tattered Rose through the stencil.
The Beautiful is a laser cut from Avesta by 49 and Market and I placed a pearl under the B for stability. Also if you catch sight of a side view you wouldn't see layers of foam or chipboard.
This is the flower cluster I have added right on top of the paper where the flowers live - you can see I have added a twine bow, puffy hearts and pearls.
A closer look at the mats which have been inked and distressed, I also added more Rub-on butterflies and lots of Nuvo Drops.
Thank You for stopping by today. I hope you like what you have seen and maybe you will try something similar with a beautiful photograph. Janine has lots of beautiful papers and collections to choose from over at  The Mad Scrapper  unless you are lucky enough to drop in. Just tell her Sue sent you!
Here is the supply list:
